I was rereading this old post and it reminded me of something that happened when I had my stitches out from my last mole removal a few weeks ago.
One of the nurses was pregnant, so I stopped in at her desk to say hi and show her the cute end product she would be getting in a few months. She told me that she clearly remembered that day I wrote about and remembered that I was in the same examination room I had just come out of. She remembered how hard that phone call I got from the ENT during the appointment was and how scary and sad it all was.
I had no memory of ever meeting this woman before, and yet she remembered that moment like it was yesterday too. It was totally amazing to me that my story had such an impact on a stranger.
